Registration Process

Back to NCPC 2020

The NCPC registration uses the official ICPC registration system. To register a team follow this registration guide. All teams should register through the ICPC system, even those that are not ICPC eligible.

Step 0:
Either the team must have a Coach (i.e. somebody that is not competing, typically a faculty member), or one of the team members has to be a Student Coach. It is the [Student] Coach that registers the team.

Step 1 (create an ICPC-account if you don't have one):
The [Student] Coach needs to have an ICPC-account. If you have participated before you most likely already have an ICPC-account, otherwise you need to create one.
To create an ICPC-account:

  1. Click on the "Sign up"-button on the main ICPC-page.
  2. Fill in all the required fields. Your email address will be your unique username.
  3. In the Institution field just start typing the name of your university. You will get suggestion for universities that match. Click on your university.

Step 2 (log in):
If you just created an account in step 1 above you will already be logged in, otherwise:

  1. Click here. (Or click on the "Login"-link on the main ICPC-page).
  2. Fill in your email and password and click "Sign in".

Step 3 (register your team):
Go to the NCPC 2020 site:

  1. Click the "Register"-button.
  2. Choose the site you want to participate from (your University)
  3. Create your team:
    1. If you are a Student Coach check the "I also want to participate as contestant" box, and remove the first team in the list of teams to register.
    2. Your university should already be filled in.
    3. If you are a student coach, don't fill in yourself as the another team member (otherwise the system will complain you are in the team twice)
    4. Fill in your team name (this can be changed later)
    5. Add team members
      1. For each member in your team:
      2. In the team member field write the email address of the team member
      3. If the page does not give you your team member as a suggestion you can also register the team member directly.
    6. Finally do the actual registration:
      1. Click the "Register Team"-button.
      2. Click "OK" in the confirmation dialog.
    7. But wait! There is more! Enter whether the team is ICPC-eligible or not:
      1. Click "Contest-Specific Fields" in the middle tab
      2. Enter "YES" or "NO" in the ICPC-eligible field
      3. Click the "Update Contest-Specific Fields"-button
